MASSIE Township, Ohio - Four people are dead after a single-vehicle crash in Warren County, Ohio, Wednesday morning.
Ohio State Highway Patrol says four people are dead after a single-vehicle crash on Harveysburg Road in Massie Township, which occurred at about 5 a.m.
The four people who were killed are Jonathan Kroninger, 21, of Waynesville; Benjamin Edwards, 26, of Lebanon; Brittany Gerondale, 26, of Morrow; and Rose Feltler, 22, of New Vienna.
It's unclear who was driving at the time of the mishap, troopers said, but all four had been at Kroninger and Gerondale's house in Waynesville prior to the incident. The two were cousins.
An investigation revealed the Ford F250 pickup truck ran about 100 yards off the road, while going northbound on Harveysburg. The truck rolled several times and all four passengers were ejected. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Alcohol cans were found among the debris and speed likely was a factor, troopers said. The area has a posted speed limit of 55 mph.
No other injuries were reported in the accident, according to police.
Authorities are on the scene working to determine what led to the crash.
